Career Closet

We'll host an open house on 4/20 from 5-7 pm

The Career Closet helps people with interview and work attire, or clothing needed for life’s specific occasions. We have it all - from scrubs to suits and from head (jewelry too!) to toe (shoes as well!). 

We have served a total of 1,447 men and women

through our Career Closet ministry.


Career Closet has opened at Forest Park United Methodist Church.

Career Closet is by referral and appointment only. All of our clothing is FREE. However, the Clothing Ministry and the Career Closet are referral based ministries.
